Liz Hirsch, a homeless woman we met in December who has emailed us dispatches about her experiences, wrote with some news this morning:

This program, through Catholic Charities San Diego, offers housing and self-sufficiency and job training to women over 50.

I asked if Hirsch would mind me sharing this news with you. Here’s how she replied:

I think they deserve to know. They’ve read all about my complaints and stories. Some of them have helped me with money and gifts, so I think they should know everything has turned out well (good?), whatever. It will be good for them to see that there is an answer, sometimes.

We hope to stay in touch with Hirsch and to keep you posted as she enters this next phase.
